Understanding Mumbai (when the honeymoon ends)

The very first task that ATMA asked me to complete was a personality test. I did so. I received ‘The Idealist.’ I’ve been accused of being an idealist for as long as I can remember and have always considered the label of ‘idealist’ to be somewhat of an insult and not something to particularly nurture. However, this has started to change during my time in India.

My experience - Living in New Delhi

I wrote this blog post more than two years ago, not long after I landed in New Delhi for the first time and I had just started working as an intern with UN ESCAP. Since that time, my perception and opinion of Delhi has changed, but in many ways it has remained the same. With just four short weeks to go until the next group of students arrive in New Delhi under my guidance, I thought it was appropriate to share what my initial reaction was to what I consider to be one of the most incredible (and underrated) cities on the planet. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed reminiscing.
